One good collaboration can lead to big money when it comes to the rap game. Unknown artists who hook up with heavy hitters can become rich overnight. Once your name is in demand, the momentum starts rolling.
Bleu has been working with Lil Wayne recently. If anyone has influence on which producers are the hottest, it’s Weezy. After getting signed on for a production placement with Wayne, he has seen the price for one of his beats skyrocket. He can be a tough person to find work with.
Bleu gloated on social media after his placement with Lil Wayne. He says he wants $50,000 for a beat. After Wayne’s co-sign he has jacked up the price in anticipation of the upcoming demand for his services.
“TO ALL YALL N*GGAS WHO WAS TALKIN SH*TTT ! LIL WAYNE PLACEMENT !!!! I want 50 … should got it’s when it was cheap yesterday price not Today price what ya say @fatjoe @moonboyhitz”
Wayne reacted with excitement to Bleu’s latest beat. Bleu took that as a sign that he’s headed for the top. That comes with a ridiculous price for rappers looking to recruit him for their next musical hook.
Lil Wayne recorded a verse for him in November. Bleu happily obliged the rapper by allowing him to rhyme however he wanted over the beat. That single moment has made Bleu one of the biggest names in music production today.
